For week beginning 14th October 2018
During this week we are going to continue working on the several ways we communicate with each other. Thank you so much for those parents who made the time to come to class and show us how we can communicate with other people around the world. It was nice to meet your family memebers.
For literacy we are continuing to learn letter sounds and formation, as well as name writing and labeling. Speak to your child to discuss what we are learning in the class. We are going to discover the difference between letters, words and numbers and do a visualization activity as well, to get the children's imagination to the maximum level we could take it through hearing different sounds. For numeracy, we are still focusing on number value and formation.
We would like to end this week with pizza, as the children going to make their own. So please we need the following by Wednesday:
- Pizza Sauce
- Mozerolla Cheese
Please visit our album to see what the children are being up to.
For week beginning 7th October 2018
I hope this finds you and your family well and that you have enjoyed the weekend. This week the children will be discussing technology and the ways we communicate. We are going to invite you to come to class to call a family member in another country. During this call the person on the other side will introduce him/herself to the students and to tell them how they are related to your child in our class, eg. uncle, auntie, grandmother, grandfather or a cousin. This conversation should only take 6 minutes with the boys group and 6 minutes with the girls group as we are going to divide the class. The aim of the project is to explain to the children the following:
- We can communicate with others around the world using technology
- We are all living together even if we are far
- Different ways to make a conversation with people even if we don't see them.
If you wish to participate please click here to book your time.
We are going to continue working with numbers as of last week including formation and number value. This also includes letter sounds and letter formation.
This Thursday 11th we are going to have tomato and cheese toasted sandwiches and jam and toast. So can you please send bread cheese, tomato and jam (small tiny jars please) by Wednesday. We also need battery operated flashlight which we are going to use during this week which we are going to return. Please make sure it comes with its batteries.
For week beginning 30th September 2018
Please accept my apology for the lateness but have been extremely busy. This week we have been learning and will continue to learn the sounds of the letters, develop some fine and gross motor skills through various hands on and exploratory activities. The children have been discussing ways we can communicate with other people around the world with the help of technology, and some have also mentioned how we can help and care for each other around the world. We have been doing Weekend News Sharing on Sundays to the whole class and then the students will draw what they have done on the weekend in their children. We have started labeling our drawing with initial sounds to improve our letter sound recognition and letter formation. As we have been integrating numeracy with our big idea, the children have been and will continue learning about numbers 0-10 counting, value and formation, and for our children whom have 0-10 knowledge will be extended to teen number.
As part of our behaviour management program Second Step, the children have learned on how to focus their attention, and do self talk. Please encourage the children in doing self talk at home which will help regulate behaviour and increase focusing.
For week beginning 23rd September 2018
Firstly thank you so much for all the red t-shirts we received on Thursday, the children had fun decorating. Photos will be uploaded today.
During this week we are going to focus on members of the family and ways we communicate with our members of the family involving technology. The students will be asked about way we communicate and their responses will be recorded. We are also going to introduce counting, number value and formation depending on the students level. Students are going to start learning to recognize and form their names on three lines. We will use the sounds of the letters of the individual name to start with letter sounds. Please use this link to expose students at home with letter sounds. For letter formation please refer to the first page only in this document to know the language we use in forming letters.
If you could please send empty toilet rolls as we need them for a project as mentioned in the email sent on Sunday. Even if you have empty aluminum or cling wrap rolls we can also use them in our project.
